    Amazing food and ambience! Great choice for vegetarians and gluten free/celiacs. Menu clearly marked and the food was delicious! Was so excited to eat GF fries (usually the fryer is shared with gluten food and I can’t eat them, but I could here)!

    We had a lovely meal here last night. Our server, Diamond, was a pleasure - very knowledgeable, personable and made our night perfect. The food was a little rich, but absolutely perfectly prepared. We really enjoyed all we had - shrimp au gratin, escargot (so nice-very traditional), moules-frite and salmon. All delicious. Great wine selection as well.

    Disappointing Brunch today, in an empty restaurant the food wasn’t good at all. Eggs Benedict served hard boiled with cold home fries and wilted salad. The steak was served raw. The server was nice though.

    We had a pleasant meal on the outdoor patio. The Salade Niçoise and Chilled Pear Soup were fresh and light on a warm summer evening. The service provided by our server, who had lived in Paris and clearly loves France, was outstanding and made our evening more enjoyable yet!

    The food was absutely divine, from the entrè through to the desserts. The ambience was perfect for a romantic dinner and the waiter was spectacular. I don't give the maximum tip but in this instance it was warranted as I could not fault them at all. Highly recommended.

    Eh, it was okay. Went for a Sunday brunch and was disappointed at the hard boiled eggs Benedict, then the additional 20 min wait for it to be recooked—guess it was pushed to the back of the line. The patio was provided a very nice ambiance, but wasn’t impressed with the food, especially with the price point.

    Good French food, always reliable. My ratatouille entrée was OK, not great. Friends had mussels, trout and salmon, all of which they said were terrific. Service was very good. It would be helpful if the restaurant could provide separate checks as many restaurants in town do these days.

    Very nice and attentive staff (other than the young female hostess who acted like she couldn’t care less when seating me.). I had the cod and potato appetizer, Caesar salad and the Coq at Vin. Found them all to be fine but quite underwhelming. Of course everyone’s taste is different. Prices are very reasonable for what you get other than the small cup of coffee they serve for $5.00 with no refills — unless you want to pay another $5.00 which i didn’t realize until after I received the check.

    We sat outdoors, which was our preference. Our waitress was very attentive. The chilled peach soup and the cucumber gazpacho were enjoyed by all four us. Their original mussels dish never fails to be large and delicious. Same for their liguini bolognese-both of our favorites. We had not had the chocolate mousse cake before and it was delicious and large enough to satisfy the three of us. Our fourth person enjoyed the creme brulee. There is parking in the garage 2 doors away.

Our server was very attentive and we were greeted with a smile. Our foods were prepared well and wine we picked complemented our meal. Overall experience was great and we will definitely come back.

    Today me and my wife made a reservation for our Anniversary to try out this restaurant and everything was great. The service was awesome our waiter Nur was amazing. Any question we had he helped us. Kept up checking up on us if everything was good and the food was good. Even when he wasn’t around the other waiters come around and pick up the empty plates. Also had this one lady that didn’t even let our water glass get empty. She was on top of it. The decor and inside looked great very clean and classy looking. Food: so for the first time ever we tried out the Escargot and man I didn’t I would say this but it was really good. I also got the Liberte Gourmand burger and my Wife got the Beef Bourguignon skillet and our say got Liberte classic burger and got it the exact way we wanted it for our picky son. Every thing was sooo delicious. Drinks: We got the Mimosa kit which was a full bottle of champagne and 3 juice(orange,grapefruit and cranberry) so the first glass I tried with with one juice and the next one with different juices. If I am ever around the location I would in come back here in a heart beat. Thank you for making our anniversary good

    Gazpacho was good. Waiter brought 2 even tho other was supposed to be a chilled peach soup, but the friend didn’t notice and liked the gazpacho. The coq au vin was clearly not. It was roast chicken (crispy skin gave it away) laying in some delicious au vin sauce, but not cooked in it. Dark meat was good, white meat dry to the point of I gave up. Desserts good all around. Beautiful room

    The food was tasty but not necessarily made with a finesse that I would have expected for those prices. For example, the shrimp gratin appetizer is smothered in a creamy, buttery cheese sauce... you couldn't really taste the shrimp or tell how fresh they were. Tasty food, but not delicate. However, service was attentive, and they were troopers during a 45 minute rainstorm still bringing orders out to the patio!

    The NY Strip au poivre came pre-sliced. Why do this? It ruined an otherwise well prepared cut of beef. I may give Brasserie Liberté another chance, but will order something other than steak just in case.

    We made a reservation for 7:30 pm in the dining room and when we arrived on time the hostess told us she had no tables available in the dining room. She offered to sit us outside in the oppressive heat or in a high top table near the bar. We took the high top. The barman served us and was outstanding so he saved the evening. Food was pretty good but not out of this world. We will go back but were very disappointed in the restaurant’s disregard for our reservation. Desserts were outstanding.

    The food was excellent, service was great and we will definitely eat here again. We sat out on the patio and even though it rained the umbrella we were sitting under kept us completely dry. The only strange thing was that they consistently got our orders mixed up. Every. Single. Time. It got to the point of being funny. No matter what they were bringing out to the table they would give it to the wrong person. No big deal though. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!

    Mussels were flavorful but the liquid, normally the best part of the dish, was waaaaay too salty. Staff was friendly but kitchen was a bit slow. Overall still a good experience - I’ll stick with the other dishes I’ve enjoyed before like the bronzino. Stay away from the mussels if you don’t want a kidney stone.
